This is my custom build Vortex Manipulator Smart-watch.

I designed the faceplate from scratch in 123D Design around a $20 smart-watch and printed the faceplate via Shapeways in stainless steel, and it's pretty chunky but in a good way.

I just finished the leatherwork for it and am very satisfied with how it turned out. I opted to go with wet-molded tooling leather and in person it looks way better and it's sturdy enough this way that you could really buy Jack wearing one for centuries.

The leather is still a little stiff, and I have to finish soldering the secondary FX circuit, (which also bridges the usb port on the watch to a more convenient location) however since I'm also adding a 5 way joy stick module for the directional pad I have to finish sorting how much functionality I can squeeze out of either 2 attiny 85's or 1 atmega.... I'd like to fully integrate the FX with the watch, however that may not fully be explored till I do v2, which will likely use a full on android powered cell phone watch.
